I see these phones are awesome if nokia does this a best phone i will be the person ready to buy this phone.....from nokia! Symbian sucks! But Windows from nokia makes nokia starting a new era for windows future phones!
Look ma, we copied the iPhone from 3 years ago.
If this is the best Nokia and WinFlop 7.xx can manage they might as well give up now. 16gb storage, oh look, thats where we got clobbered on the E7. Where's the keyboard option? Where's USB-OTG? Where's a removable battery? Where is any market appeal whatsoever?
People are not going to buy this to have the pleasure of having more than 50% of their phone data on Microsoft servers - thats a deal breaker in and of itself!
Nokia, instead of the crime of proffering dross with intent, why dont you line up your loyal customers and use a machine to kick them repeatedly in the nuts? Its cheaper in the long run and the device is off the shelf.
If this is the best you can manage Nokia, then you deserve everything you get, Lehmans spin off idea had more legs than this sorry collection.
Develop Symbian & MeeGo into world class handsets and you might just make it work, but this is just an embarrassment.
It's going to be a tough battle for Nokia...
If they don't get Ace out this year, it's going to be severely under-powered in 2012...
You've already got Sammy's version (Focus? I can never remember its name...) which is has better processor, etc. and also a very s3xy form factor (and screen)..
I do hope Nokia do well with these (as we need the competition / choice!) but unless they come up with an AMAZING looking phone or they're allowed to beef up their specs beyond the M$-enforced limits (pointless) then they're really going to struggle...
To me.. the Ace looks a bit too generic to stand out...
come on nokia bring us the n8's successor!!!!! we want an all powerful device!!!! we know you will revolutionize the mobile industry with it!!!
It's interesting the Nokia made their smartphone camera lens Carl Zeiss and autofocus (not fixed-focus), with an awesome design and great battery. These are what the Nokia fans are waiting for. The fight for smartphone number 1 position is not over yet. We are excited for the release of these smartphones.
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2011W& users do how is the battery on your phones? Does W7 have better management then Android... moreThe battery life is better than Android, it's about the same as the iPhone if now better.
I could honestly care less. Nokias just the hand set manufacturer for Microsoft now. In other words, dead.
I maybe a Motorola fan but I am looking forward to see Nokia back to the top. Because the N81 was just awesome.
At least the Searay doesn't seem to have downgraded specs from the N9. I heard rumours that it would have a 5MP camera and worse specs. From pictures, the Searay doesn't look like it has a secondary camera and I don't know why they'd remove that considering other phone manufacturers are now including that with their WP7 devices. No dual core is fine with WP7 and at least it won't drain the battery.
This is the beginning for Nokia and Windows Phone so I might wait out till an even better phone comes out in the future. I'm excited about Mango but Apollo seems like it will include features that will be suggested by users. Can't wait to see what Nokia and Microsoft will bring.
WP7 is DEFINITELY my next phone. I love its UI more than any on the market right now. The only thing that had me stall the purchase so far was, one, the lack of device choices, and two, WP7 lacking a lot many features. The Mango update, however, changes the latter, and, with Nokia coming out with new devices, and Samsung and others jumping on the WP7 bandwagon, too, there's not going to be a dearth of WP devices to choose from. IMO, the future bodes well for WP7.
The Ace is definitely the most interesting one out of the 3. Overall, impressive specs. for a WP phone. 4.3" screen is the perfect size for a phone IMO and since it will be using a CBAMOLED display, the screen will definitely be better than the majority of WP phones. I wonder what it looks like. Now let's hope Nokia can get this right.
This time nokia beat all smartphone in market we us pcs & laptops we knwo windows is the great os.
Thanks Nokia pls lonch soon as possibl.
Nokia better start educating us on how to migrate our data from Symbian to winpho esp contact...
